Infertility has been on the rise for many years, partially due to the fact that more couples are delaying having babies due to time investment in higher education, finances, and busy lifestyles. Nowadays, Dr. Strauss deals with young couples (who are relatively healthy to start with!) having difficulty achieving and maintaining pregnancy as well. Dr. Strauss' approach to infertility is simple, logical, and straight forward. On a patients first visit, he will read through the patients medical laboratory assessments (for both partners) and a comprehensive medical intake will be completed, potentially identifying where health issues may interfere with a successful pregnancy. Dr. Stauss also makes sure that both partners are functioning and performing at their optimum health as well.
Once a comprehensive medical intake has been done we establish the best means of ovulation, fertilization, and maintaining the pregnancy using a combination of pharmaceutical and natural medications. Also, we work on illness and disease prevention at the same time, to improve the health of the mother, father, and fetus.
Treatments for both female and male infertility are individualized to the specific health needs of the potential parents. Overall, Dr. Strauss uses a blend of natural and pharmaceutical interventions to achieve and maintain a healthy pregnancy.Both sexes play an important role in the fertility process!
Almost one in six couples experience fertility problems. Studies show that while 40% of the time infertility is the result of female factors, 40% of the time it is also the result of male factors, with the remaining 20% of the time the result is a combination of both male and female factors.
Dr. Strauss will address all the following concerns for the female. These are some common contributing factors that need to be analyzed and appropriately treated, if a concern:
For the male. Dr. Strauss wants to make sure that you produce strong robust healthy sperm. Most men do not get analyzed with enough detail, and typically a single sperm sample is the only test offered to the male. If your "numbers" are good, then it is said that the male is not the issue. However, over the last 50 years overall male sperm counts have declined substantially. Many health, hormones, environment, ocupational, and nutritional factors can decline sperm quality and counts.Healthy sperm is just as important as the numbers of sperm!
